Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Use a good quality but not too strong blue cheese. Gorgonzola is my favorite. Just make sure it is a crumbly blue cheese versus a creamy one like Cambozola.
  • Don’t skip the salt! Yes, cheese is salty but this recipe really does need a tiny pinch of salt to enliven the flavors.
  • This dip will keep for several days, making it a great choice for making ahead.
  • Bring the dip to room temperature before serving – the flavors and texture will be so much better!

How To Store This Keto Blue Cheese Dip Recipe

This dip will keep nicely in the fridge for 4-5 days.

Package it in an air-tight container and put it in the fridge. That’s it!

This keto dip recipe will not freeze well – please enjoy it fresh.

Is blue cheese keto?

Yes! Despite being blue and funky, blue cheese is totally keto. There’s only about 1 carb per ounce, making this Blue Cheese Dip a guilt-free keto snack idea.

What to eat with Blue Cheese Dip?

This dip isn’t runny enough to be a salad dressing, but it is perfect for dunking celery, red bell pepper, fennel, cucumber, and all your favorite veggies or crackers.

What kind of blue cheese is best for this dip?

I like using Gorgonzola. It is mild enough to not overwhelm the dip. But hey, if you REALLY love blue cheese and want the good old funky stuff, go for it!
